Agency Employees Donate over $4,100 to the Salvation Army for Bahamas Relief
West Palm Beach, Fla. – Constitutional Tax Collector Anne Gannon today announced agency employees donated over $4,100 to Bahamas relief through participation in a special October dress down opportunity, with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the Salvation Army’s Hurricane Dorian response efforts. Participating employees will wear a special Bahamas relief lanyard, a signal to clients the employee is dressed down this month for this very important cause.
“The photos and stories of suffering have affected many agency employees, as we know how close this storm came to our own community,” said Gannon. “I am so appreciative of our employees’ generosity in helping our Bahamian neighbors, who have endured so much these past few weeks.”
Hurricane Dorian, the most powerful storm to hit the Bahamas in modern history, struck the island nation over Labor Day weekend leaving catastrophic destruction in its wake. The deadly Category 5 storm destroyed thousands of homes on Grand Bahama and Great Abaco. The Salvation Army is mobilizing employees and volunteers from four locations in the Bahamas to determine needs and coordinate resources. The organization will remain within the impacted communities to implement long-term recovery efforts.
Employees of the Constitutional Tax Collector’s Office are committed to serving our community and making a positive impact. Last year employees donated $21,665 to local nonprofits. 315 employees serve Palm Beach County’s 1.4 million residents from six service centers, one call center and an administrative office.
